AVMS Public Art Grant Fund

Project Overview:

 

Allston Village Main Streets is proud to announce the creation of the Allston Public Art Fund, which will fund Allston public art projects up to $3,000. 

 

Process:

  • Artists who qualify will fill out the public art fund RFP form and attach a project proposal, budget, timeline and conceptual design/program schedule.

  • Certain public art projects will need approval from the City of Boston. AVMS can work with artists on this process if needed.

  • Selections will be made by AVMS’ Neighborhood Beautification Committee.

  • Artists will be notified if and when they are selected, and asked for additional plans for implementation of their projects.

 

Eligibility:

  • This grant fund is only intended for public art projects that are either publicly located in Allston, or that provide a free benefit to residents, workers, and stakeholders of Allston.

  • Artists must be a resident of the Greater Boston area and must be at least 18 years of age.

  • Artists who live or who have lived in Allston will be given priority. 

 

Project Timeline and Award:

The AVMS Design and Beautification Committee will review these application in November and December 2022, and will contact applicants that meet the fund requirements. Approved artists will be asked to present their projects to AVMS’ board of directors for final approval of project and budget. Artists will then receive approved funds in January of 2023. 

Additional Requirements:

  • This fund is intended to benefit art projects primarily taking place in Allston. Applications based in other neighborhoods of Boston will not be considered. 

  • This fund is meant to support all forms of art in Allston. Any artistic medium will be considered by Allston Village Main Streets’ Design and Beautification Committee. 

  • We strongly urge applicants to partner with other organizations or non profits to increase the effectiveness and reach of the proposed program.
